Big changes already as new GM Jeff Bridich hasn’t even had a chance to let his name on the door dry yet. The Rockies announced today that pitching coaches Jim Wright and Bo McLaughlin won’t be welcome back with the Rockies this coming season.
Wright, who ultimately replaced previous pitching coach Bob Apodaca, has been visiting the mound since 2012. McLaughlin setup shop in the bullpen and together they’ve completely underwhelmed the Rox faithful with the lack of arm talent being cultivated at Coors. 2014 saw the Rockies leading the league, and not in a good way, with an 88 ERA+.
Here’s hoping Bridich continues to make the important changes needed to get this team back on track.
